I 'd planned on posting this over the weekend, but missed the deadline for the Carnival of Recipes, so I'll post it now.
Unlike the other recipes I've posted from time to time, this one is not my own, although it's an old favorite. Until a couple of weeks ago, I'd always assumed it was my mother's, but I learned otherwise when I asked her whether it would be alright to post it. As it turns out, she got it from a family friend.
In any event, this has three virtues and a vice. The virtues are that (1) it's tasty, (2) it's easy to make, and (3) it doesn't take very long to prepare. Its vice is that my wife doesn't care for it.
That vice poses a slight problem for me since I'm interested in collecting comparably simple recipes as a means of saving time and money by cooking at home more often.
So, I offer it here in exchange to any passer-by who might want to try it in return for passing along to me something he knows about that is good and easy. If so, post a comment or email me....
1. Brown and drain:
- 1-1.5 lbs ground beef.
- 1 can cream of mushroom soup
- 1 can cream of celery soup
- 1/2 soup can water
- garlic salt to taste
- pepper to taste
- 1/3 to 1/2 cup cooking sherry
4. Serve over 12 oz. cooked spaghetti.
Funky. I just flipped this card over to find a recipe for a chicken gumbo I don't recognize or remember ever making. I'll have to whip that up and post it some other time if it's good. It has the merit of being quicker than my own gumbo, but probably needs some tinkering.
